I feel like I am speeding through this week--I want Tuesday to come so we can get that cancer out of there, but our lives will change forever once it comes and I'm digging my heels in a little about that.
I have so much I could blog about--most interesting to some would be the hour plus meeting with the surgeon. But I don't have the time or the energy to recap it all. I will say that I came out of the conversation with a whole new appreciation of how complicated this is. I watch that rotationplasty video and it looks so simple--cut the leg and then put it back together. But think of the nerves and blood vessles and most impressive to me, the muscles that have to reconnect. I've thought a lot about the bones and them fusing together, but the muscles are really important in order to get the movement he needs. Maybe sometime I can go into more detail. Feel free to ask me questions if there is something specific I can address.
And life goes on. Despite my plans to have tons of fun, there are so many other things to do to get ready. We are still doing housework, going to school, doing homework, potty training, making phone calls to lots of people for lots of reasons, etc. We are trying to make the most of even those commonplace moments and sneak in a few fun ones as well.
